Property from the Collection of Irvin & Anita Schorsch: Hidden Glen Farms

Charles HammellComment

This is an outstanding collection of a broad spectrum of mostly American decorative arts, spanning the 17th through 19th centuries, with a few modern pieces for good measure. Irvin and Anita Schorsch carefully culled a museum worthy trove of material treasures, placed them in period settings and lived with and enjoyed these pieces throughout their lives. On January 20-22, 2016 these choice delights will be available for purchase at Sotheby’s in New York City. The catalogue for this event is magnificent. There is also an online link -
